1.5 was the redstone update. They haven't said (to my knowledge) what 1.6 is going to be. What if it's going to be the animal update? If they're working with the Mo' Creatures guy, then maybe we're going to see a TON of new animals, and horses will just be one of them.
I will never understand the absolute, utter hatred people have towards updates. I paid like $20 or less for this game and I've been playing it for years. That's a fantastic return for my investment. And all you people can do is complain.
I agree it seems a lot of people take this for granted. Mojang has one of the best community support stuffs I have ever seen. Bethesda has updates for skyrim like every 3-4 months of bug fixes before a dlc comes out and the only one with good added features was 1.9 with the new legendary difficulty.

Sweet! I've wanted horses in Minecraft for quite a while now, it's nice to see them make it into vanilla finally.
What makes it even better is that they got DrZhark to help them make it,
and his horse mechanics were probably one of the best representations of what it would be like to have horses in Minecraft.
Since this update is slated as the mob update and not just a horse update, I wonder if that means we'll see some other new mobs as well as well as updates and changes to other mobs.
lol, freaking hilarious how so many of you guys still complain about new added content to this open sandbox game even though using about 97 percent of this stuff is COMPLETELY OPTIONAL and you can so easily play the game and just decide to not use new content at all!! "Hmmm, this game is turning into runescape because its adding too much content even though its nothing like runescape in any way and has zero relevence to the added content in that game".
Dont tame horses if you dont like them! what, seeing them in your map is going to ruin the game for you? seeing horses in the wild, the ability to craft stuff you dont need but can if you want to make cooler redstone projects, and allowing others to use optional craftable/tamable/havestable stuff hurts the game for you? can you not use some creativity and imagination and play the game without taming horses even though its there if you want it? People just dont like change and will whine every time anything is ever added to any game ever! lol
Its great to see a person here who's not a total tool. Thanks for giving me a shimmer of hope in humanity. I paid the same amount and have absolutely played this game and got more from it than any other big $60 game.
I can't see the problem either. Half of them say:
"STOP ADDING THINGS"
and the other half:
"STOP SPENDING TIME ADDING THINGS I DON'T PERSONALLY LIKE"
It won't harm your game any, despite the popular belief that they make Minecraft unplayable and explode your houses.
And some people thing the game needs to stay clear from normal things like horses to mantain its creativity. So they just want games to make everything weird and defy logic (riding pigs and floating trees) just so it stands out. I'm pretty sure minecraft had done enough to seperate and stand out from just about every game out there! We still have all kinda of weird and unique stuff in the game that is not going away, plus adding elements from real life to an unbeleivable world such as minecraft should enhance your imaginative experiance not detract from it. but to each his/her own i guess.
I honestly hope this is an attempt at another joke on Jeb's part.
For one, Mojang said during one of the Minecon panels that they want people to use the rail system more, so they will try to improve it and not make item pipes, instead forcing people to rely on carts (which they eventually added a pipe-like action that requires redstone to droppers(which defeats their purpose of adding the "dropper" in the first place so they could give dispensers more functionality)).
But if they add horses for fast travel? Minecart usage will go down even more. Some people might even use horse for item travel instead, even if they have to ride the horse themselves to do so. If horses are too slow, or are similar to riding pigs, people will complain and hate the feature anyways.
If they don't add horses for travel (as in, can't ride because of Mojang wanting players to use carts, or they end up horrible), people will complain even more than they say how much they want horses now.
TL;DR: Mojang isn't very good at implementation or sticking to their decisions. Like how they say on twitter they say they don't like automation and then add bonemeal used from dispensers.
I feel that horses are just going to be something else for players to breed and kill, and just yet another failed method of transportation that doesn't beat just walking or sprinting (or a boat if there's water already).

It’s the unpleasantness of the system that keeps me out.
I’d rather be in, in a good system. That’s where my discontent comes from:
being forced to choose to stay outside.
My advice: Just keep movin’ straight ahead.
Every now and then you find yourself in a different place."
